It takes students four years to finish high school study in the U.S. from grade 9 to12 (equivalent to the last year in junior high school to the end of senior high school in China). Because education regulations and policies differ across states, there is no general standard to evaluate high schools in the U.S. However, you can refer to authorized ranking institutions, such as Niche and Business Insider.
Public schools charge less for tuitions, but most of them do not provide accommodations. Most public high schools only accept international students for the one-year exchange program. Public high schools are usually larger in scale and less difficult to apply for.
Private high schools have higher tuition fees, some of which are full-time boarding schools. Some leading private high schools have very limited admission quota and the competition is fierce. Public high schools usually cost approximately $35,000 a year; while private high schools cost around $50,000 a year (including tuition, room and board, and other expenses).
American high schools value interviews very much, and the student’s performance during the interview usually determines the admission results. At the same time, the school will also conduct holistic review on the students' extracurricular activities and special skills.
Most high schools in the U.S. take interview as one of their essential evaluations and interviews are usually carried out via Skype or a third-party institution. If available, you can also schedule an on-site interview as well as a campus visit, which will be a good opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the school itself, and leave a deep impression on admission officers.
In principle, it is appropriate for students to enroll between Grade 9-10 . In the 9th grade, students will adapt themselves to the new environment and improve their English. In the 10th grade, they will start to study AP courses and enrich their extracurricular activities. In the 11th grade, they will maintain good academic records and begin preparing for the TOEFL and SAT exams, and get ready for the college application. Most high schools in the U.S. do not accept application for the 12th grade.
The private high schools in the United States are around high-income neighborhoods, and the security is in good condition, so it is totally unnecessary for parents to worry about the safety of their children. Choosing a homestay family is not an easy task. The first thing to consider is the English-speaking environment. The United States is a diversified immigrant country with residents from all over the world. Therefore, it is better to choose English-speaking host families, which will help your children improve their English proficiency. Secondly, the background of the host family should be fully investigated to ensure it matches the students’ needs.
